Werewolves Can't Fly

“Werewolves Can’t Fly” blurb: 

Mermae joined Kade and Iain four months ago. Halloween is almost here and Iain, a werewolf, is desperate for them to commit to each other.
But how can they keep their secrets in a city? And if they move out of the city how will they earn money and live?
Iain asked werewolves Dwyer and Nelson, who live on a secure farm, if his family can bond there and run on Halloween. Dwyer and Nelson are thrilled Iain has found his third person and welcome them to a little hidden cabin.
The mating is wonderful, but all their other problems remain unresolved. Is there a solution to them?


They lay on their sides in bed, sweaty and relaxed, satiated, yet Iain wanted more. With Halloween so close now, he wanted to convince-- no, that's wasn't fair. All decisions had to be made freely. He wanted Mermae and Kade to understand how badly he needed them to mate, to commit to each other, so his wolf side would be fulfilled.
Hoping he could explain himself properly, Iain said, "Halloween is special to a werewolf."
"What, you're going to howl at the moon?" teased Mermae.
He tugged her closer to him. "You never know, I might. But I really will need to run properly that night, and I want you both to be beside me. Traditionally, we fuck, then run, then fuck again on Halloween."
Mermae slid up on an elbow so she could look into his face. "There's more than that, though, isn't there?"
"You're a very perceptive woman. Yes, there is. We usually fuck the first time as humans and the second time as wolves, but that can't happen in our triad. But the ritual, yeah I need to complete the ritual. I..." Iain broke off. He didn't want to pressure her, or Kade, although Kade knew a bit more about how important this all was to him.
"You want us to commit." Mermae spoke slowly yet firmly.
Iain rolled over and lay flat on his back staring at her face, trying to read the expression behind her eyes. He nodded. What if she turns me down? What if she isn't ready yet to take this step?
"Okay. Let's just go through this all again. You can bite me without turning me into a werewolf. You've bitten Kade and nothing's ever happened to him. Right?"
"Yes." Kade spoke at the same time as him. Iain was going to add more, but it was obvious Mermae was still thinking, so he waited for her to finish.
"The commitment is binding. Once we commit it's for life. Except that you're going to live a hell of a lot longer than Kade and me. Does this mean even after we die you can never commit to another two people?"
"Yes, it does. But I've been told in committed triads that include non-wolves, the humans tend to live quite a lot longer than regular humans. As you know, I've never lived in a pack. We were lone wolves. My three parents and twin brother were killed by hunters when I was a teenager and when I looked for a pack, they were all one male/one female packs, and much bigger than me and..." Once again he couldn't finish what he wanted to say. This was not the time to pull the pity card. Mermae had to decide for herself, not because of anything he said, but because she wanted to commit to him and Kade.

Flight To Joy

“Flight to Joy” blurb

Mermae can fly. She’s had to keep it a secret, and has never met anyone else like her. One evening she thinks she sees something as she lands after a flight, but decides she’s mistaken, so walks home.
Kade sees a woman flying and is intrigued. He can fly, yet has never met anyone else who can. So he follows her to her apartment to learn her address, then hurries home to his partner, Iain, to tell him the good news.

 PG 13 Excerpt

Kade had done a double somersault in shock when he'd seen the woman with long, brown hair flying through the air. He'd found out he could fly when his best friend had dared him to jump off the garage roof, like Superman. Kade had scrambled up the ladder onto the building, jumped, and floated gently to the ground. His friend had crashed to the earth and broken his leg. None of their parents had been very pleased, and Kade had learned then and there never to say he could fly.
To see someone else flying was beyond amazing. It was the most exciting event in his life since the day he'd learned he could fly. He absolutely had to find out who she was, and where she came from. He'd hovered behind a tree until she began walking, then had followed her as discreetly as he could manage. When she'd entered the apartment building, he'd run like hell so he could see what floor she got off the elevator at, then he'd raced up three flights of stairs to see her exit the elevator and enter her apartment.
Only then did it occur to him she might have a husband and a couple kids who knew nothing about her flying, and bursting in on her might not be smart. There was also the issue of Iain, his own partner. Oh, God, Iain. I must go tell him right now. Then we need to meet her, talk to her together.
Kade was a hell of a walk from his own apartment, and had no idea where to catch public transportation home from here. He stood on the sidewalk for five minutes, but no taxis passed him. Fortunately, when he phoned for a cab, one wasn't far away and arrived in minutes.
He burst into the apartment he and Iain shared, and ran into the living room. Iain wasn't there so he skidded down the hallway and into the bedroom. Iain was sitting in bed stroking his cock. Kade's own cock rose in response but this was no time for sex. He bounced onto the bed and said, "Iain, I saw someone else flying tonight. A woman with long, dark hair."
Iain's whole face lit up in excitement. "Really? You did? What's her name? Where does she live? Did she agree to meet with us?"
"I followed her home but didn't want to go inside without you. You're an integral part of my life and you have to like her too, especially if we're going to… But, I mean, she may be married with kids and stuff already."
Iain dark brown eyes held Kade's gaze. "She would only be married to someone like us. Someone a little different."
"Hey, speak for yourself. I'm almost normal. I don't howl at the moon, and go hairy now and then."
"No, you just jump off the roof and glide through the air like a bird!"
"Well, yeah, there is that. Come on. Get dressed. We need to speak to her. See if she's The One.
